Beaches around to swim

Some of the most outstanding beaches of East Pelion

Image - Chorefto Beach
Chorefto Beach
Marina:In this beach of 2km you can find anything that you may need. In the center of it you will find all the organized part with taverns, cafeterias, market, bar etc. Going to the North you will meet a more "sandy" beach while walking to the South part of it there are stones inside the sea and outside to the beach. But what you will find everywhere around is the crystal clear waters of Aegean Sea!
Image - Port of Chorefto
Port of Chorefto
Marina:Whenever Chorefto is windy and with waves you can always swim at the little port of Chorefto. Ideal for families with small children. Although most of the time there are small boats, the waters are clean. It is located to the South part of the beach, right in front of Chorefto camp. There you will find also boat rental services and canoe kayak activity.
Image - Agii Saranta Beach
Agii Saranta Beach
Marina:The locals call this beach "The Thailand Beach" and if you visit it you will understand immediately the reason :) Walk to the South end of the beach, till "Sarande Restaurant" or even further till "Monk Bar". During summer prefer to visit this beach early in the morning as there is not enough space to park and the access is kind of challenging.
Image - Damouchari beach
Damouchari beach
Marina:This unique location that looks like an island it used to be pirates' village and port. Also, few years before it was one of the backstage places of the famous "Mama Mia" musical. It is divided in 2 small and beautiful beaches. From one part you will see the natural port and from the other side the white and protected stone beach.
Image - Mylopotamos Beach
Mylopotamos Beach
Marina:One of the most famous beaches of East Pelion. When you will visit it you will understand the reason! Green- blue crystal clear waters in an outstanding location. Walk down from the parking place to the beach and cross the hole in the rock so as to arrive to the other half part of the beach with the caves ;)
Image - Plaka Beach
Plaka Beach
Marina:Small natural pools and natural shadow are 2 of the many amazing characteristics of this unique beach next to Agios Ioannis beach. You arrive here through the small and beautiful village "Anilio" and through "Hotel Eden". Use their parking for the most easy access to the beach.
Image - Elitsa Beach
Elitsa Beach
Marina:This non touristic beach is the absolute example of East Pelion beauty. The wild forest arrives until this rocky beach, while the small hidden church waits for you to discover it! The broken heart inside the sea is another characteristic spot of this amazing place
